Theor Popul Biol 98:1-10. 2014..In our models based on random mating, surfing alleles remained at relatively low frequencies and surfed less often compared to previous results based on stepping-stone simulations with asexual reproduction. ..
- Variation in carbon availability, defense chemistry and susceptibility to fungal invasion along the stems of mature treesDevin W Goodsman
Department of Renewable Resources, University of Alberta, 442 Earth Sciences Building, Edmonton, AB, Canada
New Phytol 197:586-94. 2013..Consistent with predictions based on sink-source relationships, vulnerability occurred where carbohydrates were less available, and likely resulted from C withdrawal by sinks higher in the supply chain...
- The impact of phloem nutrients on overwintering mountain pine beetles and their fungal symbiontsDevin W Goodsman
Department of Renewable Resources, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Environ Entomol 41:478-86. 2012..Thus, the fungal symbionts of mountain pine beetle enhance phloem nutrition and likely mediate the beneficial effects of fertilization on the survival and development of mountain pine beetle larvae...
